sidekick 4

It looks like the recently unveiled Motorola Zante will not make it as the Sidekick 4, instead it seems the Sharp Shuriken may be in line for that position. The folks over at hiptop3 are speculating that the Shuriken is just an internal name and that it will be launched as the Sidekick LX or Sidekick 4. The Shuriken is expected to include a 3-inch widescreen LCD, 1.3 megapixel camera, and have microSD support. The Sidekick 4 is expected to be first released in the US with Australia, Germany and the UK to follow.

  2. wow, so they are going to keep a 1.3 megapixel camera? they are crazy… there better be video and better internet than there is now, i would like to listen to music or see videos online like the iphone. Actually there better be alot of things better than the sk3 or im just gona hold on to this and not waste my money on this new crap.

  4. I'm sure that there will be more improvements. The iphone being so great with their technology that they are using, don't be surprised if everything that we know so far is just a load of crap

  5. I think the phone isn't gonna be coming out too soon. I don't know how reliable these sources are but the sk4 is gonna have to be more or less like the iphone because all the new phones coming out are on a whole new level. I already thought that the sk3 should have had the ability to watch videos online. I guess I should start saving up now cuz the sk4 is likely to cost us a pretty penny!!!!!

  6. Well personally lyke every1esle I hope it has digital camera cuz dis sk3 camera is horrible I mean seriously I bought ma lil cusin who 8 a digital camera for 49 dollars and its very clear and I have the dwayne wade sk3 which I paid 420 for I mean come on tmobile step ya game up real talk

  7. IT'S TRUE.!!! i saw it today on the bart. this guy that works for tmobile had it it comes out within the next month & everything is still the same (sucks.!) the screen is just different..but EVERYTHING is the same. oh yeah and its not the zante its the SHURIKEN.

  8. Well I truly do want it to come out and have betta features to it. The Sidekick 3 didn't have a flash player for the internet but I hope the sidekick 4 have a flash player. It shud have videos on it cuz I don't think all the otha sidekicks have videos on it that's y this 1 shud. But I have a sidekick 3 and I really want to get an upgrade. But I don't want a phone that's like the sidekick 3 I want a complete change. If the sidekick 4 is like the sidekick 3 y change it :-? U noe. But I will be prayin that the sidekick 4 will be so much betta than all the otha side kicks. :)

  9. How much will the sk4 cost

  10. It would need wifi before I would even think about staying with SK. I hate the idea of switching to att. But the iphone switches to your wifi network when you are around, plus it will charge on my car stereo ipod dock and I won't always have to drag my ipod with me when I head out in the car.

  12. I would have to agree with the people below… I mean be realistic now… Helio just came out with a phone that has 3.0 mega pixels.. and though the phone is sweet.. We are talking about the damn Sidekick…

    The phone that change the phone game.. SK4 lacks the stuff. Alarms.. Espeically with the iPhone release..
    Motorola needs to step back on the creation of this one. Were talking about the same company that brought the "first" slim phone… but the damn thing was crap…Plus with the looks of it ur taking out the swivel. Though it might get old to some people, thats what makes the SK the Sk. So in corporating a "slide" is a very wack idea. Keep the same MD card… that should start becoming a standard in every phone. Now everybody understands that we can't have a touch screen like the iphone but inter grade some good stuff. Mos Definitely a internet so fast i wont be able to to get a half of a blink in before its on my Sidekick. Pretty much myspace is the thing and i know that i have a music account so go ahead and add that stuff to make it play while cruising on the net.

    Very good idea to had that big screen on it.. Looks good.. The SK3 has some good space on the QWERTY keyboard. But make the screen(when fliped out) to actually phone ratio a lil thinner is the buttons are to hard to text. On

    Alright Sharp
    do that shit and make the SideKick Family please to be called as such…

    Peace

  13. If the sidekick 4 don't have a better camera like a 2.0mp don't have better screen display dnt have video and a webbrowser that u could watch videos online its just a waste of time cause no1 is really gonna buy that crap I sure wouldn't it has to be at least10 more things on the sidekick 4 that's better than the sidekick 3
    And do anyone know when this phone comes out?

  14. just to clear things up for everyone I was on the fone with tmobile yesterday getting a replacement sk3 and the rep told me that she sk4 is scheduled for release in december (but don't count on it, it's always pushed back) and I asked about the features and it will have better camera and all that stuff, this info that was released is just a teaser from the company to get ppls reactions. of course they're not going to say all of the features yet, the fone hasn't even built it's still being designed

  15. its expected to be coming out sometime between october and christmas. i really want it. i had the sk3 and i miss it a lot. the camera could have been a bit better and the web browsing could have been worth using it but all around it was a pretty good phone.

    victoria
  16. the sk3 looks muck better{{the sk4 is really ugly}} i was going to wait until the sk4 came out to get a sk but i think i'm just going to get a sk3.

    Chelsea
  17. okayyy. i agree with most of you guys. if the sidekick 4 isnt better than the i phone then im switching to verizon:D i have the sidekick 3 and i get bored with it. it neeeeds a better camera and it should be able to take videos. you should also be able to do anything online. you cant even watch videos or change your top friends on myspace ?
    yeahhhhh.

  18. first things first. 1. putting too much features on the sidekicks can cause a lot of battery usage. 2. if putting all the features on a phone it can easily slow down or freezes the phone.3. better to have a phone that doesn't have all the features on a phone camera phone and bluetooth would be fine. we have ipods and digital cameras. if any1 has ipods and digital cameras then why would you need it on a phone cuz it can cause alot of battery life as i said. its a waste of money buying ipods and digital cameras if your not going to use them. 4. with all the features on a phone then may as well sell your ipods and digital cameras and just use the features on the phone. 5. i know that it's good to have all these technologies into a phone. but, i would just wait till they have the phones with better features than buying a new one that comes out. its not good to buy a new phone in realized that they have weeknesses and have they same features as the old phones that came out b4. and lastly 6. phone is just a phone don't have to pick a phone thats a lot better than others. if you can make a call on it then its fine.

  19. Sidekick is the shit fuck iphone and ocean

    Killla
  20. well I just got off the phone with tmobile it's true that the new one LX is out on october 24th .. it's all pretty much the same just that you can send picture texg messages, it's lighter thinner and more battery life pretty much that's it .. I just want to get it cuz I'm sick of looking at my sdk 3 lolz .. soo yeah I probablly will get it .. and i m a apple fan but I don't think I would get the iphone just because it doesn't have I'm and to write on it SUCKZZZZ I TRIED IT! wow soo yeah they should stick to ipods .. lmao and its like for professionals ppl that don't text freak like me .. lolz

  21. well i am really looking forward to the sidekick slide & LX but if the camera is not clear on taking pictures & the service does suck! i defintely wont waste my money the blakberry pearl takes GREAT pictures & i feel the sk slide should also & more gb

  22. They r saying that sidekick4 web will b faster then sidekick 3 I just hope pic come out good because they r real bad on side kick3

    charlene
  23. Well I hope the sidekick 4 is beter cuz the sidekick 3 pix r gay and the sidekick 4 should have beter web that's faster not like the sdiekick 3 that takes 4 ever to go online and u should be abel to surf the web like a real computer not this slow as crap where paying to much money to get a phone that has some gay ass thems it beter r I'm getting a I phone!!!!!!!!!!

    *G EYEZ* MP!
  24. I'M TIERD OF T-MOBILE STUPIDITY, I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY CANT STEP UP TO THE PLATE WITH THERE SIDEKICK'S AND TAKE IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL. THIS SK4 SHOULD BE TOUCH SCREEN, JAVA ENABLED(VIDEO ON THE WEB) BETTER RESOLUTION ON THE CAMARA W/ ZOOM & BETTER FLASH & TAKE VIDEOS, THE ROLERBALL SCROLL FEATURE SHOULD MOVE AROUND LIKE A REAL MOUSE ON A COMPUTER SCREEN, RADIO, GPRS SYSTEM (THAT COULD BE AN EXTRA, JUST TO GIVE IT A EDGE ON ALL THE OTHER PHONES)….i WOULD NOT MINED IF THEY TRIPLE THE PRICE JUST MAKE THE PHONE HAVE ALL THOUS FEATURE AND T-MOBILE WILL HAVE A MEGA HIT NO MATTER THE PRICE.

    SK3
  25. omg!!the sk3 nd the sk4 are the same thing!!! You would think after waiting that long they would have taken it to the next level…..these are the things that they should have on the phone…..*btr camera nd flash*ablity to take videos*listen to music nd watch videos on the internet*nd tht mouse idea is really cool…what are these ppl thinking?!?!?! taking away the swivel screen?!?! tht makes the SK so special!!! plus sidekicks are the best phones around but verizon had the best service….any where i go i loose service nd it sucks!!! wen eva i go to the mall or any department stores i dnt hav service =/…….it should also hav longer lasting battery…….so next tym they should also have the fone luk kinda lyk the sk3 but different …… nd in black!!!!! the blue nd brown are the uglyest colorz eva!!!!!!! plus the actual fone iz ugly…….

  26. WELL ACTUALL I HAVE BOTH PHONES SK SKIDE ND THA LX THA SLIDE ACTUALLY SUKZ THERE HAVING PROBLEMS WIT THEM N THA LX IS HOT N SEXIIE IS NOT REALLIIE BLUE IT LOOKS BLK BUT NTN DIFFRENT ON IT THEN THA SK3…..I THINK THIS IS JUSZ A WAIST OF MONEY

    CHULA
  27. Well all I actually wanna knoe for tha sidekick4 is if they have better pictures or if they can send pic messages and if it lightens up on tha sides becasue I heard it does soo. If somone knows tha answer and truthfull I have an sk3 right now so if yall know reply or tell me thanks.

  28. come on!, the lx is the same thing as the sk3. just a bigger screen. nothing special about it to me. only that you can send pic to phones now. very disapointed, was thinking that it was going to have video, better camera cuz that 1.3 suck ass. longer battery. come on. they need to do something, new and fast. because they arent doing a damn thing. but just making it look better. just like ipods. it does the same shit, just looks better.
